netta is so gonna win :lmao: 

  1. awful social media and mobile phone references... check
  2. kitsch and catchy.. check
  3. stupid nonsensical sounds.. check
  4. fat pride.. check
  5. bright colors.. check
  6. annoying belting in the last minute (that she'll probably overdo live).. check

as long as germany doesnt win, im good

Edit: I do want to clarify that I LOVE eurovision. it's our own show and it's cute how the US media just doesnt really "get" it. (and I think I can speak for most europeans when I say that we all secretly love that ;) ) 

Though after euphoria it did start to get a little more modern lately, but I hope in the performances this year we'll see a lot of the usual eurovision fun, kitsch, and some of the culture from the different countries. (good example what @Jazzy Jan posted in the M discussion) :lmao:

talking about local culture.. remember urban trad? they invented their own language. we looked like a bunch of yoga hippies. :lmao: (though I always liked the song, I have to admit. I like this sort of stuff :p )

remember when sergio almost fell? 

though aside from our one time win, locally, liliane saint pierre's soldiers of love has to be the most famous entry :p (I love it)

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/16/arts/conchita-wurst-hiv-positive.html

Former Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst revealed on Sunday that she is HIV positive and that she has been receiving regular treatment for “several years.”

Writing on Instagram, the Austrian drag queen, 29, said she felt forced to reveal her HIV status because an ex-boyfriend had “threatened to go public.”

These photos posted by Head of Production Ola Melzig in his annual Eurovision Diary show how the stage is taking shape inside the Altice Arena. The first stand-in rehearsals start next week, followed by the participants' rehearsals starting on 29 April.

I hope the jury makes the Israel MESS sink down in oblivion. What a stupid annoying song. If only it were camp and cheesy and great, but it is only stupid. 

Guys it is only in a couple of weeks!!!!
